TRAFFIC OPERATION IMPROVEMENTS

Transportation system management applied to traffic engineering operations requires reevaluating basic transportation needs of those who walk, use public transportation, or drive automobiles. Replacing existing control mechanisms is not adequate. New ways must be devised for optimally sharing limited rights-of-way. Signs, channelization, traffic signals, reversible lanes, and ramp-metering policies are discussed in this paper. /Author/
